I have my very first wedding cake for September and I was wondering since it will be a 2 hour drive what I should take with me just in case I'd hate to take the whole kitchen!
I plan on taking the item needed to stack and decorate and also my cakes will be already iced I will stack and pipe any extra decorations, including some extra icing for that but in case something goes wrong how prepared should I go?

Extra icing, bags, tips, spatula. towels, one to be wet. gloves, in case you have to work with an audience. If you are adding flowers, make extra. a Camera, I forget photos about 20% of the time.

If you tiers are boxed separately, and you use non-skid in and under the boxes, keep the airconditioning on, you should be fine.

For sure do not forget the camera. Take a photo before you leave as proof that the cake was left in good condition, in case something happens after you leave. Have a friend that delivered a cake. After she left, the dj came & set up at a table next to the cake. The base was so loud that the cake shifted & fell off the table. Horrors!

on the towel thing I usually take one wet, just toss it in a ziploc bag. That way you don't have to worry about finding a water source.
